Before and after #1: My kitchen improvment

05-24-2018 07:19 PM by Wiserwood | 3 comments »

Two years ago, I bought my second home alone after my separation. Having only one salary to pay the monthly payment and little time and knowledge in the renovation, I was advised repeatedly not to buy a house, but rather to opt for a condo. My idea was made: I could not afford to buy a new house, but I had my father join and semi-retirement to help me renovate. So I made several changes and here is my cooking before and after. Contrary to what one might think, the changes are rather...

Spalted Ca. Coastal Live Oak Stump Table

05-24-2018 03:55 AM by highlander33 | 0 comments »

This is a new stump table that I’ve started to work on , it came from the same tree that had been dying , that was taken down for safety reasons . I’ve started sanding and attached some caster wheels on the bottom to be able to work on it easier, the underside is really incredible , but I haven’t taken any pictures of it yet . I’m thinking of putting a piece of glass on top after I’ve finished . with maybe some lights in the core to make it really stand out ...

Greene & Greene Gamble House Side Chair #23: Rounding Parts and Establishing Plug Locations- Part 1

05-24-2018 01:37 AM by TungOil | 2 comments »

With the lower stretchers rough cut and the cloud lifts formed, I move on to some of the detail work. First, I round over the edges of the lower stretcher parts with a 1/8” round over bit in the router table. With the rounding complete, I compare 3/16” and 1/4” square ebony plugs for size on the lower stretcher. The 3/16” plug looks better to my eye so I cut 3/16” square holes in all of the stretcher parts using the Lee Valley square punch. Except f...

Moravian Workbench Build #2: Bench Top

05-23-2018 03:53 PM by ElroyD | 3 comments »

Those who read the first entry in my Moravian Workbench Build may recall that I had been working in our laundry room till the weather warmed up enough outside. Unfortunately, it didn’t. Winter had a hard time letting go of the northeast this year, and I was eventually forced out of my small laundry room workspace. I didn’t want to stop work on the bench though, so I retreated to our very dark, very dusty, very musty, very in need of repair basement where I began work on my be...

New woodshop #5: Holiday work in the shop

05-23-2018 01:11 PM by Combo Prof | 2 comments »

Then break between semesters came at December 24, we drove down to the retirement shop and I had hoped to get a lot done in the new shop. But is was so friggen cold the best I could do was to add insulation and shovel snow. I bought UltraTouch™ R-13 Denim Insulation Batt’s, because of its sound proofing and ease of installation.No mask or gloves needed, each strip fits perfectly between 16 inches on center studs with an 8 foot sealing. Back working on the shop now, but unfortu...
